The storefront still stands today, though it's been abandoned for a long time. It's in a nice area of downtown New Haven, near Yale, the green, and Wooster Street- home of the best pizza in America. Back to the the plane.. It's in very good condition overall. It retains its original paper label, despite being at least 130 years old. Pond made planes from the 1830s-1890s. the profile is fully boxed. The boxing is straight and true. The blade is clean and sharp. I honed it a bit and made some test cuts.

Most Unusual I. SYM "Slanted" Astragal Molding Plane .
I've had this plane for a while, determined to figure out what it was used for. I can find no reference to it anywhere in any of my references, The plane cuts a pretty standard 1/4in astragal. The odd thing is that the plane cuts that astragal while held at about a 45 degree angle to the work. This would allow the plane to reach into awkward places and cut the astragal . I have no idea what sort of work would call for this operation. The plane appears completely original and unaltered, with the exception of a couple of holes in the sole, evidence of a fence being attached at some point. The blade is ground to match the sole profile. It's an early plane dating to the late 18th to early 19th century. It's in excellent condition all around with no damage and only minor wear. It's an oddball for sure.

Excellent Adjustable Wooden Compass Plane.
This plane is in excellent condition with hardly a scratch on it. The plane has a curved sole and a dovetailed depth stop at the toe which regulates the radius the plane cuts. The depth stop is just dovetailed to the plane body, but the joint it so well done it's very hard to alter the stop's position, save with light hammer blows. It's a masterful example of the sliding dovetail. The plane has a likewise perfect 2in wide double iron made by Hearnshaw of Sheffield. As shown in the photos the back of the blade is perfectly clean without a speck of pitting. It's a gorgeous example, and a completely usable plane.

This plane has a massive 2 1/2in wide parallel iron, with chip breaker. The iron is in outstanding condition with zero pitting. The plane has an applied rosewood sole in front of the mouth to resist wear and keep the mouth tight. The body has dings and scratches from use, and a very old, tight check in the left cheek. The check is stable and won't affect use. It's worth it for the massive blade alone which would fit well in an infill plane.
